PiGI PCBs are now available on pcbs.io

Nordrunner produced and shared PiGI - Raspberry Pi Geiger-Müller Interface PCBs on pcbs.io, which are now available for everyone. If you haven't had a chance to get PCBs from fehlfarbe or shipping from Germany wasn't an option for you, you can check it out on https://pcbs.io/share/r1Dq6.

Happy Hacking and tick counting.

Blockchain based Micro-Grids

Here is a great story about the beginnings to autonomously produce, share and manage local energy harvest and consumption in blockchain based micro-grids:

The pilot program was successful enough that the microgrid will go live later this year. The next phase of the project will involve 300 households or small businesses that have signed letters of interest, along with 50 generation sites—all solar except for one small wind turbine. In total, those producers generate about 1.5 megawatts of electricity, still just a small portion of the needs of Brooklyn’s nearly 3 million residents. But the point is not to replace the whole grid, but to show that small grids can serve local communities.

HTTPS Connection Problems

For the last 24 hours a couple of users may have encountered TLS connection problems to this wiki, especially with latest browsers as a result of an unfortunate combination of problems. The last certificate expired yesterday and a new one was rolled out but the new certificate (from STARTSSL) seems to have been signed against STARTCOMs root CA, which was already kicked out by mozilla and google in latest firefox and chrome/ium. As this wiki is only accessible through HTTPS and ensures this by setting HSTS headers, there was no quick fix to mitigate the problem.

Since the whole TLS/HTTPS/CA business is totally broken by design, we either have to live with it or make a conscious move to https://letsencrypt.org/ with https://certbot.eff.org/, which will provide our certs from now on to be more independent from commercial CAs and their leaks and implementation problems.

Sorry for the inconvenience if you were hit by this problem.
